In the competition every team’s task is to design and build a solely solar-powered, energy-efficient, cost-effective, light structured house with the collaboration of the market representatives. 20 teams submitted a successful tender, including the team of Budapest University of Technology and Economics. The participating teams’ performance will be juried on the basis of ten criteria: Architecture, Construction and Engineering, Energy Efficiency, Electrical Energy Balance, Comfort Conditions, House Functioning, Communication and Social Awareness, Industrialization & Market Viability, Innovation and Sustainability.
Because of this complex criteria-system the open-mindedness of teams are essential; that the team members represent various scientific areas; and of course every participant needs to do his/her best in favour of a successful project.
Our team is a project organization that has almost 70 student members, who are under mentoring of the Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, Dr. Gábor Becker. During the implementation of the project not only architect students participate in, but taken advantage on the University’s unique feature, students from five other faculties are involved in the work as well. The Solar Decathlon BME Team’s main aim is to present: the use of solar energy can be aesthetic, convenient and affordable. The students in cooperation with their professors and sponsors are working for one and a half year on the creation of a solar house that uses innovative self-developed and used architectural and technical solutions, which later can be successful on the market, thus move forward the spread of sustainable green energy and approach in Hungary.
We are very pleased that Reynaers Aluminium NV placed confidence to Odooproject, and support our team with the whole sliding door system. The huge, continuous glass façade that overlooks the court is designed to use passive solar energy, and it’s a very important structure of our house because of design aspects as well. The Reynaers CP-155-LS Minergie sliding door system and the Reynaers CS 104 system fulfill every design- and energetic requirements, what our team needs. Thank to this structure and the support of Reynaers Aluminium NV, Odooproject will be able to participate successful in the Solar Decathlon Europe competition.
